There’s more to Whistler, British Columbia than just a premier ski resort – for those not in the know, the mountain town aspires to be the "Sundance of the North". Organizers upped the ante at the 12th annual Whistler Film Festival, when they secured both Daniel Radcliffe and Twilight scribe, Melissa Rosenberg to participate. On November 30th, Radcliffe will sit down for an intimate chitchat, as the festival spotlights his long and illustrious career as a thespian.

Fresh off the success of the last Twilight installment, Melissa Rosenberg will be bestowed the honor of Variety’s Billion Dollar Screenwriter Award. To date, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 has grossed a paltry $362,500 and counting.

Other honors to be bestowed include the festival’s Trailblazer Award for Acting & Scriptwriting to be given to actress Rashida Jones, on November 29th.

"Held over the first weekend of December, the Whistler Film Festival has become one of Canada's leading film festivals and is an emerging force on the international circuit. Presenting 80+ films and hosting filmmaking luminaries for an intimate program of screenings, seminars, tributes and special events, this celebrated event is made up of key industry players with an audience of over 8,200 including 500+ industry insiders," the Whistler Film Festival Society state on their site.

The festival runs from November 28 to December 2, 2012. For more info, visit, www.whistlerfilmfestival.com.
